    Bloomberg presses Obama to take away guns

    Bloomberg presses Obama to take away guns

    Posted on 14. Apr, 2010 by The One in Barack Obama

    A leaked report by New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg confirms what many have suspected: Obama could tighten gun laws while in office.

    A report from a national coalition of mayors urges President Obama to adopt dozens of gun registration and confiscation measures, including the creation of a federal interstate firearms trafficking unit.

    After months of waiting in vain for gun control supporters in Congress to take aggressive action against semi-automatic firearms, gun shows and NRA-supported restrictions on the abuse of instant background check records and firearm trace information, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is urging President Obama to make 40 changes to federal gun law interpretation and enforcement on his own-without congressional approval.

    Bloomberg conveyed his recommendations to the president through the euphemistically named anti-gun coalition he heads, Mayors Against Illegal Guns, the NRA reports.


    The report doesn’t just recommend a few minor regulations. It’s a detailed blueprint for a massive crackdown on firearm liberties, particularly with regard to gun shows. The report contains 40 new recommendations and marshals seven different agencies, the departments of State, Justice and Homeland Security, the FBI and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATFE), the White House Office of Management and Budget and the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).

    Will Obama go for it? A fight over gun rights is the last thing the president needs right now as America hurtles towards the 2010 elections. Then again, Obama has shown himself to be notoriously tin-eared when it comes to the nation’s political sensitivities. If he still passed health care reform despite the outcry, he certainly could consider major gun reforms.

    As we’ve previously reported, Obama was something of an anti-gun nut during his teaching days at the University of Chicago. Fellow professor John Lott said one of the first things Obama said upon meeting him was that he thought all guns should be outlawed. After Lott disagreed, the future president treated him with disdain.

    He figures anyone who can get an abortion like the health care bill passed can do the same for a gun control bill as well. Maybe he read the thread where we were going to mug New York City and make it more conservative! :D

    Many Mayor accross the country joined Bloomberb's MAGV, "Mayors Against Gun Violence", presumably without knowing it was a Gun Ban Organization and dozens have officially retracted there support.

    You can find out if your Mayor is on the "members" list for MAGV by going to nra.org

    It even provides a link to e-mail your Mayor and question why they belong to a group dedicated to eliminating your 2nd Ammendment rights.

    The 16 year Mayor of Vancouver WA was defeated 3 months ago by a conservative candidate in an upset victory. The incumbents participation in MAGV was an issue for Vancouver voters.

    I didn't see Bloomberg noting all the mayors that have removed themselves from his "association of mayors" when they found out just what kind of s**t it really was.
